Brain Food

 

Today's Snack: Choose three things from the "Brain Builders" list at the left, below. Now put them into the same bowl in the wackiest combination you can eat! And then . . . eat and enjoy!

 

--------------------

 

Supplies:

 

One piece of poster board

 

Colorful markers

 

Some foods help the brain work better. But some foods drag down brain performance. Naturally, you'll want to eat more "Brain Builders," and avoid the "Brain Drainers."

 

Draw a colorful poster that illustrates this. You might show two sides - one with the "brain building" foods, and the other with the "brain draining" foods.

 

Consult an encyclopedia or other reference book for what some of these foods look like!
